I totally agree. They built new complexes like this at Clarion and they just look ghastly to me. I mean, it's a box just like a dorm, albeit a nicer box.

The problem is getting the scumbag landlords to do necessary maintenance on the cute little vintage apartments, which I'd say is probably a big part of why students (and their parents) go for these. They're secure, the water and heating and electric is up to date, and you can call the complex manager and get your problem taken care of ASAP. Well, theoretically.
